Introduction to Programming with Fortran

  • Presents new examples on submodules, derived type i/o, object oriented programming, abstract interfaces and procedure pointers, C interop, sorting and searching, statistics and converting to more modern versions of Fortran

  • Contains lots of clear simple program examples highlighting the core language features

  • Includes six new chapters and two new appendices

  • Incorporates updates throughout the rest of the book to bring it in line with the latest standard - Fortran 2018, and in response to feedback from delegates

  • Fortran 2018 is backwards compatible with all earlier versions - Fortran 2008, 2003, 95, 90, 77 and 66, and thus the book is of use to people working with code based on these standards

About this book

This fourth Edition presents new examples on submodules, derived type i/o, object oriented programming, abstract interfaces and procedure pointers, C interop, sorting and searching, statistics and converting to more modern versions of Fortran.

Key Features

Highlights the core language features of modern Fortran including data typing, array processing, control structures, functions, subroutines, modules and submodules, user defined types, pointers, operator overloading, generic programming, parallel programming, abstract interfaces, procedure pointers

Pinpoints common problems that occur when programming

Illustrates the use of several compilers

Introduction to Programming with Fortran has been written for the complete beginner with little or no programming background as well as existing Fortran programmers and those with programming experience in other languages

Ian Chivers and Jane Sleightholme are the joint owners of comp-fortran-90 which is a lively forum for the exchange of technical details of the Fortran language. Ian is the editor of the ACM Fortran Forum, and Jane and Ian have both been involved in the Fortran standardisation process.

The authors have been teaching and supporting Fortran and related areas for over 40 years and their latest book reflects the lessons that have been learnt from this.
